- Discs are resin bonded together on a circular core for increased durability
- Brushes are built around a steel core, resisting deflection under heavy pressure
- Made with aluminum oxide mineral for sharp cutting action
- Open web resists loading, contributing to longer abrasive service life
- Open web responds to surface irregularities without altering geometry of the part
Our Scotch-Brite™ XDR High Strength Bonded Cleaning Brush aggressively cleans and deburrs a variety of hard metals.
Buoyant, responsive open web fiber construction
Our Scotch-Brite™ XDR High Strength Bonded Cleaning Brush is a robust brush that, among our XDR brushes, falls right in the middle. It's a good intermediate option for operators looking to strike a balance between flexibility and aggressive cutting action.
We create Scotch-Brite™ cleaning brushes by attaching abrasive discs to a cylindrical core and binding them together with resin. The individually bonded discs make our Scotch-Brite™ XDR brushes more durable, providing 2 to 3 times longer life than standard Scotch-Brite™ cleaning brushes. We construct our flap and cleaning brushes differently, so they may be used for different applications. Typical applications for our cleaning brushes include coil cleaning prior to coating, deburring, scale and oxide removal and reclaiming sheet and coil. Scotch-Brite™ XDR brushes have steel cores, so the brush stays sturdy when run on finishing equipment. The steel core adds a level of durability to the brush.
Our Scotch-Brite™ XDR High Strength Bonded Cleaning Brush is made with aluminum oxide mineral, which is interspersed on synthetic fibers bonded with resin. This mineral is tough and durable and self-fractures to expose fresh cutting edges while in use. The buoyant, open web construction of the fibers makes the abrasive more responsive. Our Scotch-Brite™ XDR brushes are a good match for cleaning flat surfaces, because they will smooth surface irregularities without sacrificing the geometry of the part. Additionally, the open web resists loading by limiting clogging of the fibers. This keeps the mineral cutting sharper longer. We recommend using a lubricant or coolant when cleaning as it assists in washing away swarf and reduces loading, which helps extend the brush's service life.
Note: When ordering a bonded construction cleaning brush, please allow an additional 1-1/4" to provide clearance for the 5/8" lock collars located at both ends of the brush. For instance, if you require 40" of usable brush width, order a 40" wide brush. This brush, however, when measured at the core will actually be 41-1/4" including the lock collars.
